TES Scotland talks to Kilgraston School about its ban on mobile phones

Mobile ban at Kilgraston praised in national mag…


TES speaks to the Head of Kilgraston, and its pupils, about the School's strict policy on mobile phone use - the resulting relief from social media pressures and subsequent improvement in exam performance...

“Should mobile phones be outlawed in schools?”

The question posed by TES Scotland, in its six-page spread this week, while examining the spike in mental health problems, particularly within the teen girl age group.

“Girls were almost addicted to them,” MacGinty told the reporter, “this has become a real problem”.

Since the ban at Kilgraston, in September 2018, things have vastly improved. “It’s given me the ‘headspace’ to focus on other things,” says one Sixth Former.

The magazine continues, telling readers that, ‘Last year the (Kilgraston) School achieved its best exam results for five years and Mrs MacGinty is in no doubt that the phone ban played a significant part.’

To read the full analysis and comment from other industry leaders, TES Scotland – issue 28 February 2020 – can be bought in most supermarkets or WH Smith stores or ordered through Membership subscriptions on 0345 521 7111
